Maynard told US Weekly that she and Johnson “definitely are looking to get married sooner rather than later.”
A source told E! that Johnson timed his proposal “right after the New Year at her house in Charlotte,” around which time she posted a pic of the pair on Instagram, writing, “It’s going to be a good year :)”
Emily, the first single mom to appear on the ABC hit, received two diamond rings from her husband-to-be: One for her, and one for her 8-year-old daughter, Ricki.
“We’re really excited!” the charming beauty said. “He proposed to me at home and gave both Ricki and me rings. It was so sweet! Ricki loves him more than she likes me!”
The 27-year-old’s former fiancée was late NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, Ricki’s father; her other past engagements include ABC reality stars Brad Womack of The Bachelor, and Jef Holm of The Bachelorette.
“I’ve had enough engagement rings!” she joked to the magazine.
